Sudlows to deliver data centre to Salford Royal

Sudlows has been awarded a data-centre contract for the headquarters of the Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust. The project, won in competitive tender in partnership with IT solutions provider Softcat, is for a 14-rack facility accommodating a 100 kW load. Adjacent plant space will house a new switchboard and UPS units, as well as providing for high-speed optical-fibre connectivity.

The flexible design provides a modular expansion that allows systems to be installed in line with current and anticipated operating loads in steps that retain the crucial balance between cooling and critical power that is essential to maintain an efficient facility.
